I was going to write some golf blog posts today, but I slept in…
I like Jim Furyk. He’s a gritty player (#3 in the world) and seems like a nice cat. Apparently he made a little boo boo this week though. He uses his cell phone for his alarm in the morning, but his battery died. He missed his Wednesday morning pro-am tee time at the Barclays by five minutes. That made him NE (not eligible) for the tournament.
I did some quick math. Furyk has made $3,308,872 in 18 tournaments this year. That averages $183,826.22 per tournament. So he arguably missed out on $183,826.22 based on those numbers.
I can’t imagine being in a situation where I’d lose $183,826.22 if I slept in. The worst it is for me when I sleep in is that my automatic coffee has already shut off and I have cold coffee in the morning.
